ATTS light on dash HELP!!

Alright so first off, nooo my ATTS light is not on.
I know it only stays on when the unit needs the atts fluid right/or when it's not active?
I was wondering if it's supposed to light up when I turn on the car ? along with the green key, battery ,brake light. but i've never seen it lit on my life.
i know this is probably a noob question for you guys but just want to make sure the bulb behind the cluster isn't burnt out or anything.
Thanks guys.

Re: ATTS light on dash HELP!!

Your letter size is huge! Yeah, from what I know its supposed to light up at start up. My ATTS light doesn't come on at all either I dont know if bulbs bad or if previous owner removed it.
They ATTS light will come on if there is a problem much like a check engine light, I'm assuming it would also throw a code if you're low on ATF fluid.

Re: ATTS light on dash HELP!!

i don't think the light is supposed to light up, if you think it may be burned out, take the cluster out and swap one of the bulbs from like the SRS light or check engine light and see if it comes on.

also, making the text enormous does not make your problem more important or make us want to help more ;)

Re: ATTS light on dash HELP!!

if you do take out your guage cluster to check, it isn't hard, just don't force things too hard, because it is easy to crack the plastic. there are 2 screws on top, then the bezel pops out with clips. then there are 4 screws (one on each corner) of the guage cluster. once you have the screws out, the cluster will just come out, and it has 3 plugs that go into the back. all have a clip you have to squeeze, and be sure to pull by the connector, not the wires.

easiest way to tell if they removed a light where there was supposed to be one is to hold the cluster with a light behind it and see if any lights light up. if they do, then there is supposed to be a bulb there. if not, try swapping one of the top lights in the middle from the SRS light, and if that works, then the bulb is out. you can go get one from honda, or you could just use the SRS light bulb in your ATTS socket. the SRS light should only turn on if you are in an accident, so it isn't that important.

edit: and you don't want to have the ATTS light come on. so if it doesn't, then don't worry, nothing is wrong, and that is good lol.

Re: ATTS light on dash HELP!!

According to this the ATTS light is supposed to come on at start up. Like the other warning lights: http://www.members.shaw.ca/FifthGenT...Procedures.pdf -- it says it somewhere in there.

So that fact that niether of our lights come on at all means there is something wrong, hope just with the bulb, because it would really suck to put a new bulb in just to find out your ATTS light stays on indicating your ATTS system is effed up, lol.

Re: ATTS light on dash HELP!!

I will swap the bulb hope the bulbs just out and hopefully my atts light doesn't stay on.
Or that'd suck but I don't want it to not run properly without ever knowing.
I know my ATTS works for sure though, I hit onramps one 2nd gears feels so sllid.

Re: ATTS light on dash HELP!!

if your atts light is on, the system is off. if your atts works, then the light has to be off. if your check engine light ever comes on, the atts light will also come on, because it shuts off the system to protect it.

Re: ATTS light on dash HELP!!

check what the ATTS code is. do a google search on what each code represents. open up the obd2 port by the passenger right knee and unclip the blue slot. you will see 2 silver holes stick a paper clip in there and it will tell you what the codes are when you turn the car accessories on by blinking

he is saying that he doesn't see a light when he turns on the ignition, while the other lights flash for a second, he does not see the atts light flash. if i understood correctly.

Re: ATTS light on dash HELP!!

Alright guys so it turns out there was no bulb in the ATTS slot.
I turned on the car ATTS light turns on and seconds turns back off. I was relieved for a bit until it turned back on!!!! noooo i left it without the bulb. if I get a code reader or whatever ,will it still read the codes even though the bulb isn't there?
and same goes for my check engine light but i know the light goes on because I don't have a cat. will I still get readings?

Re: ATTS light on dash HELP!!

I dont see why not, It should still be able to pull the codes without a bulb.

EDIT: Well I just put a bulb in for the ATTS light mine was also removed by someone else and now that its in it stays lit up. I'm not that worried about it right now though.
